Jones joins Barnsley on loan

Tuesday 17 January 2017  5 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton Under-23s defender and frequent team captain Gethin Jones has moved to Barnsley until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old is the latest player from the Blues' Academy to get an opportunity to gain first-team experience on loan this season.

Jones, now a regular for Wales U21s, had a spell at Plymouth Argyle last term where he made six appearances.

Good opportunity for him. Clearly Barnsley are doing something right going by Holgate and Stones. Hope he does well at Oakwell.

Alan (#2) Barnsley have another young defender, I can't think of his name, who a lot of top clubs are watching, he is rated in the £5M bracket.

Everton seem to have a good relationship with Barnsley so maybe the Jones deal is a sweetener for a future deal... Not that I'm writing Gethin off, he is a lad with a lot of energy, determination and fight in him, he has also played wide on the right as well as full back and the fact he has captained the U23s means the club have a lot of trust in the lad.

Martin (#5), I think so but not sure; I read about the player last week.
